I've received nothing but rave reviews from my colleagues after whipping up treats from this cookbook in the faculty lounge kitchen. Admirers of Pow Wow Chow may also enjoy Bow Wow Chow, a Indonesian-influenced cookbook from a former professor now in politics.

Overall this selection is lacking and has just a few good recipes inside. One for Humble Pie and another for Roasted Crow.

As a 0/32 native american, I decided to practice the recipes in this book in hopes that I would be invited to a luncheon, brunch or something with fellow 0/32 native americans.

I made this purchase hoping I would be invited to Indian lunches but I haven't got past the hot water part.

I drove a Jeep Cherokee through a Creek in Seminol Fla. while on my way to visit Choctaw to see my friend who is Chickasaw. Pow Wow!!! I got them all in in one sentence. That makes me 5/32 of Civilized American Indian. POW WOW!!!

Now freed from the bondage of my WASP upbringing I will be able to write my own Indian cookbook, coloring books and survival guide for progressive liberals lost in their own mind.

Lizzy you saved me from a life of believing I was just an old fat white guy.

Now I can be anything I want...to dream the impossible dream...

Do try this book...the recipes for eating crow are excellent!

I thoroughly enjoy the recipes here. My favorite one is called "Diversity Dish." This was contributed by the world's only confirmed blond-haired, blue-eyed Cherokee who used her tomahawk to dig this up from her Oklahoma archives. You start out with 10 quarts of sanctimony, add in a gallon of hypocrisy, throw in a few fables (I recommend the "Family Lore" brand available in Cambridge), add a pinch of whining (1/32 ounce will work), toss in a paleface poseur and a large measure of insufferability. No integrity required. And there you have it: political career implosion. Great for faculty lounge gatherings and unearned academic advancement.

Some of the recipes in this book are by the nation's most famous Cherokee, Elizabeth Warren, who is 0/32 native on her mother's side. As a fellow 0/32 Cherokee, I have enjoyed getting in touch with my ancestry through some of the delightful recipes Dr. Warren has published, such as a recipe for herbed tomatoes. I absolutely recommend this for anyone with a similar ancestry who wants to know more about the traditions passed down from their forebears.

I'm confused; each recipe calls for 0/32 measurements of ingredients -- that doesn't add up to anything. I have serious reservations about these recipes.
